Building Celebration and Alumni Weekend - September 12-14!
On Friday, we will be hosting a welcome breakfast with alumni, faculty, and staff in the building, followed by our Student Scholarship Reception. In the afternoon, we’re excited to welcome back, Alan May (AM – ’82), Chief People Officer/Executive Vice President at Hewlett Packard Enterprises for an alumni leadership discussion, followed by the Building Celebration at 5:30pm. Chancellor Robert Jones, Provost Andres Cangellaris, Dean Fritz Drasgow, Dr. Carl Soderstrom Jr., and Tim Brinkmann (AM '88) Vice President at Frito Lay, will be speaking at the event as we celebrate the completion of the project and honor those alumni, businesses, corporations, and friends of the program that supported the $6-million project.
Saturday, the Fighting Illini are playing Eastern Michigan and we will be hosting a pre-game tailgate and have a ticket block available. Keep your eye out for an official invitation and email invitations. We hope you can join us, as this will be our largest alumni gathering and celebration in years.
